Any way we can bring in technology into the classroom to improve learning can only be a good thing. Take for instance Twitter and YouTube. Valueable lessons and strategies can be found using these sites which can only be beneficial for our students, if used wisely I must add. 

Jacinta Ferlazzo's curator insight, May 29, 2016 10:09 PM

I especially like the idea of tweeting as a character from history! Not only is it enjoyable, but it encourages the students to quite literally put themselves in their shoes and evaluate their decisions, trials and tribulations on a much more personal level.

Training events – whether face-to-face or online are primarily focused on knowledge transfer or skill development. Learning is usually measured in terms of the % of people who have completed the training or passed the tests.

But the real learning takes place AFTER the training has ended, when the individual is back on the job applying what he or she has studied – and learning from that experience on a continual basis. Learning both from everyday personal working experiences well as interactions with their internal colleagues and/or external customers or clients. That’s how they learn most about how to do their jobs –  by actually doing their jobs.

Emotional intelligence is the "something" in each of us that is a bit intangible. It affects how we manage behavior, navigate social complexities, and make personal decisions that achieve positive results. Emotional intelligence consists four core skills that pair up under two primary competencies: personal competence and social competence.

EM Matthews's curator insight, June 20, 2015 6:01 AM

EQ is easily one of the most necessary, yet under-sought character skill sets for effective leadership and management! EQ was once the result of years of trial and error regarding effective social interactions. As the article suggests we all have the capacity for EQ, the challenge rests, however in actively nurturing (through targeted practice) our efforts at successfully employing and improving our EQ abilities, or characteristics.

A Visual Chart on Summative Vs Formative Assessment ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Visual Chart on Summative Vs Formative Assessment ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Continuous Improvement Model | Scoop.it

This post is born out of a discussion I had with a fellow teacher on the Facebook page of Educational Technology and Mobile Learning on the differences between summative and formative assessment. Luckily this discussion coincided with me reading Frey and Fisher's book " Literacy 2.0 : Reading and Writing in The 21st Century Classroom." and there was a section in which the authors talked about these differences in a subtle way by referring to formative assessment as assessment for learning and summative assessment as assessment of learning.

Dr. Amana Levi's curator insight, April 19, 2016 3:02 PM
Understanding the vertical progressions for English Language Arts are essential to cracking the code or deconstructing a common core aligned state standard.  

Three parts are important for deliberate lesson planning:
1. Marzano or Danielson's instructional framework, 
2. ELA spirals (with specific deconstructed standards), 
3. Test item specifications for grade level to ensure appropriate alignment of tasks.

Additional resources:
Florida Education Reform: http://tinyurl.com/z7z9qye

Consider how the use of these resources can be used to assist both teachers and school-based coaches.

Why Cross-Training Employees Makes Sense | Jack or Jill of all trades

Cross-Training Employees: Why It Makes Sense

When you use the words “cross-training” many business executives and staff immediately think of sports. We have visions of the triathlete who is simultaneously honing their swimming, cycling, and archery skills, so they can compete in some extraordinary challenging event at the world level.

In fact, it is a word that is coming out of North American boardrooms more and more these days, as corporations find themselves having to deal with the new realities of rapidly changing markets and increasing production and service challenges.

In business terms today, cross-training is used to describe the process of training employees so that they can do several jobs within an organization. On a production line, for example, a person is able to move from their original position to another completely different skill. In a food operation, a front-line order taker must also be able to handle short order cooking skills, clean tables, and order supplies.

 

The “Jack or Jill of all trades”, a relic of the past in an age of specialists, is now the most coveted of employees again.

How to create a culture of daily mentorship | eLeadership | Coaching | Mentoring | eSkills | Continuous Improvement Model | Scoop.it
According to a study by Harvard Business Review, young high achievers value mentoring and coaching and often leave their current gigs in a quest to have those needs met. Companies like Microsoft and KPMG have caught on by giving employees exposure to peers in different divisions to provide fresh ideas and new ways of thinking.

In addition to more formalized training and education programs, many companies also try to foster mentorship within their organizations, often with mixed results. Like matchmaking, mentorship can seem shrouded in mystique and luck. HR departments eagerly set up colleagues for lunches or other work “dates” and cross their fingers that the chemistry will spark. A seasoned pro will take an eager novice under his or her wing and the next generation of great leaders will be born.

A Visual Primer On Learning Theory

 

Theories on how people learn are not new. Piaget, Bruner, Vygotsky, Skinner and others have theorized for years how it is we come to “know” things.

Unlike many theories involving physics for example, it is unlikely that a single learning theory is “right,” and will ultimately prove other theories “wrong.” How people learn is complex, and any unifying theory on how it all happens that’s entirely accurate would likely be too vague to be helpful. In that way, each “theory” is more of a way to describe one truth out of many.

4 Traditional Theories Of Learning: ...


Via Elizabeth E Charles
Dr. Amana Levi's insight:

Subscribing to both Bloom and Vygotsky’s social learning theory and currently Webb's Depth of Knowledge allows educators to build upon a student's learning experiences by scaffolding and facilitating questioning techniques to guide students from simple recall to higher levels of creative and critical thinking, thereby allowing them to reflect on their own thinking process. The visual primer is the realization of what "good teachers" and "good leaders" do (i.e. - making meaningful connections and then synthesizing the information).
